Affinity Photo 1.8.6 MacOs Desktop Metadata-File datas not 'refreshing'

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody.

I'm facing a possible problem with the METADATA datas per each photo in the above described environment.

Whenever I edit a photo, I do not see any mismatch.

The problem I'm falling down is that whenever I recognize an error in the metadatas I already saved for a photo, there are no ways to fix it.


I wrote: This photo ARE representing ... (then I saved and exported the photo)
Instead of: This photo IS representing ...

I'm not able to fix the error.
Able to re-open both the '.afphoto' and the 'exported file';
Able to apply the updates, and able to save them.
Unfortunately the process does not really save the update I filled in (from ARE to IS, in this example).

Des anyone had same mismatch ?

Thanks in advance for any help

Same here (macOS 11.0.1, Photo 1.8.6). Maybe it's because Photo saves the description to both the EXIF Image Description tag and the XMP Description tag and then can't edit them both at the same time. Whatever the reason it's not good behaviour.

Affinity Photo 1.8.6,  Affinity Designer 1.8.6, Affinity Publisher 1.8.6, Mac OSX 11.0.1, 2018 MacBook Pro 15"

Betas as they happen...
